ALLAN TURNIPSEED
1948—2011

 

allanAllan was born in Strathmore, Alberta, Canada, then moved with his family to Dallas, Texas where he grew up. Allan attended the University of Texas in Arlington, where he acquired two degrees; one in Art, the other in Graphic Design. He  had a graphic design business in Dallas for 35 years.

At the age of 21 he met his life partner, Bob Tennison. During their 42 years together, they traveled throughout Mexico and fell in love with the country, people and culture. After visiting Ajijic, about 30 years ago, they decided to return to live. Their dream came true in 2004 when they retired and moved to Mexico full time, to live in El Parque, then to upper Riberas into a house designed by Allan.

Allan was involved in designing promotions for many of the Lakeside charity organizations and events: Northern Lights, Viva La Musica, Los Cantantes and, recently, the new logo for the Niños Incapacitados. Every year he devoted many long hours to the Regalorama Bazaar sponsored by his church, St. Andrews, for which he was Senior Warden on the Vestry.

Allan’s pride and joy was his vintage Jaguar, on which he had spent the last two years restoring  to its original condition. To his friends, the car was known as “Mother England.”

His brilliant smile and marvelous creativity will be greatly missed by his many friends, and by our community in general.
